Come hear biographer Antonia Felix as she is interviewed by Karyn Miller-Medzon for C-SPAN BookTV.
In this breakthrough biography, Elizabeth Warren: Her Fight, Her Work, Her Life, bestselling author Antonia Felix carries readers from Warren's hardscrabble roots in Norman, Oklahoma, to her career as one of the nation's most distinguished legal scholars and experts on the economics of working Americans. Felix reveals how Warren brought her expertise to Washington to become an icon of progressive politics in a deeply divided nation, and weaves together never-before-told stories from those who have journeyed with Warren from Oklahoma to the halls of power.
Antonia Felix is the author of twenty nonfiction books, a novel, short fiction, and drama. Her biographies of women leaders including Senator Elizabeth Warren, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor, and Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice have given her opportunities to speak and lecture on women in politics in many venues. She has appeared on CNN, MSNBC, FoxNews, SkyNews, NPR, BBC, PBS’s “Washington Journal,” CNN International, and others. She is a featured biographer in the award-winning 2010 documentary American Faust: From Condi to Neo-Condi.
Elizabeth Warren's rise as one of America's most powerful women is a stirring lesson in persistence. From her fierce support of the middle class to her unapologetic response to political bullies, Warren is known as a passionate yet plain-speaking champion of equity and fairness.
